Had a $1500 fish come unbuttoned and a $400 fish flip off the pro rule back into the lake on Bridgeport Saturday. One of those days!! bang We also failed to adjust and get out of the muddy water earlier in the day which cost us time in the cleaner main lake. My partner caught a really nice 6 and change which got us most of our entry back and we still did pretty good considering but it should have been a much more lucrative day! Shoulda, woulda, coulda!!


See you on the lake and have a great day!

I have never measured a fish anywhere other than the bottom of the boat since seeing Jim Bitter lose a fish that would have won him the Classic.

Live and learn, it was barely over the line, I was trying to decide keeper or not and let pressure off the fish for a split second, that was all it took. Again... bang

I did not get a good hook set followed by too much pressure, followed by a very nice 4 pound +/- fish jumping nice a pretty and spitting my bait at me.

On the good side it was a beautiful day to be on the water and we got home before the bad storm came through.

Yep. I’ve had my own ineptitude cost me money fishing. Several times. Ya just gotta have a short term memory, and get over it and move on. It happens. Call it bad luck for you, good luck for them, whatever.


Eat. Sleep. Fish.
